My desktop LAN card is not connecting to the ADLS modem. On the internet settings it shows local area connection as connected and also shows sent values as increasing but the receiving remains zero. The connection is fine on my laptop .Is it faulty LAN card or wrong LAN settings?

You said that you have tried your LAN connection through your laptop and that it worked however, it was giving you issues on your desktop. You will have to try other troubleshooting steps to isolate the issue further and find out if it’s a faulty LAN card or conflict on connection settings.  When you tried your LAN connection on your laptop, did you use the same Ethernet cable from your desktop? If not, please try that same cable to find out if it’s the cable that’s causing you trouble. Or you can try a different cable for that matter, whichever is more convenient for you. If it’s not the cable, please try to check your connection status from network and internet connections under control panel. If the set up or configuration is correct for your LAN connection, you may need to uninstall the driver of your LAN card from the device manager and have it reinstalled after restarting your computer, then have the driver updated afterwards. If none of these works, then you may have to tear-down the tower or open up the system to check the LAN card or have it replaced if necessary.

Hi Princess.
 
You might wanna tell us something more about your settings like the exact make and model of your equipment.
 
If you have tried connecting the ethernet cable to a different equipment and it still doesn't work, then it could be a problem with the cable.
 
If it works then on a different Laptop, then it will just be the settings.
 
I'd like you to try restoring you LAN connection first. If you're using Windows XP, you can do this by choosing "Start," "Run," and type cmd. A window appears and type the following (without the quotation):
 
To reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults :"netsh int ip reset reset.log"
 
To reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: "netsh winsock reset catalog"
 
Restart your computer and that should tell you if it works.
